Summary
  • Putney Swope: The most popular flim by Robert Downey Sr. is this offbeat classic about the antics that ensue after Putney Swope, the token black man on the board of a Madison Avenue advertising agency, is inadvertently elected chairman
  • Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight: This dadaist thingamajig is a rush of curious sketches, scenes, and shots that takes on a rhythmic life of its own. It stars Downey's multitalented wife, Elsie, in an endless succession of off-the-wall roles. This is a never-seen-before re-edited version of Moment to moment
